Happy Halloween Optimists!
We’re nearing the end of week two of Voting Cycle #8. Governance Committees will be issuing their recommendations for all the proposals that will be up for voting beginning on Thursday, November 3 at 7pm GMT. Keep your eye on delegate communication threads as well.
The #gov-general channel in Discord exploded last week, until @lavande stepped in and provided guidance. The Optimism Foundation is working on an “enforceable delegate code of conduct”; in the meantime, we should be adhering to the Discord and forum codes of conduct.
Check out all the proposals in the Voting Cycle #8 Roundup Thread. Voting begins later this week.
In the Forums
Season 2 Feedback Thread. Contribute constructive thoughts here ahead of the upcoming Reflection Period. Lots of insight shared already.
Discursive health of DAOs. Here’s a brief research survey to complete, about governance.
Synthetix and Phase 0 delegation. This continuing thread is both contentious and important for OP governance. Take a read.
Concerns about OP governance. @ScaleWeb3 provides some thoughts and an analogy: “The lack of meaningful governance activity in this governance delegate model and the cartelization/oligopoly around grants reminded us of a good old article: Lisk - the mafia blockchain.”
If you have the capacity, dive into the #gov-general exchanges from this week. Then go outside and touch grass.
Check in on the #gov-temp-check channel to respond to proposals looking for feedback.

A recording of the most recent Governance Call can be found here. There was an excellent presentation by @haonan and @MSilb7 dissecting the effectiveness (or lack thereof) of the Governance Fund so far.
The next call is scheduled for November 8. Keep your eyes on this calendar for all things Optimism governance.
